This project intends to cover the controls on import, trade-in and non-commercial movements of dogs and cats from Third Countries and within EU.
In June 2013, a new set of EU legislation on non-commercial movements of pet animals and on animal health requirements on intra-Union trade and imports of dogs, cats and ferrets has been issued (Regulations EU 576/2013 and 577/2013; Directive 2013/31/EU). The aim of this project is to train a high number of competent authorities staff in order to further improve the understanding and the harmonisation of the implementation of EU legislation on the above-mentioned subjects.
